Melissa Largent, M.S.CCC-SLP
My name is Melissa Largent. I have been the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) for the Early Childhood Special Education ( ECSE) program at Lake Ridge Elementary since 2021. I have been providing early intervention speech therapy to children since 2008. My goal is to give every scholar a voice so they can communicate and learn effectively. I look forward to working with your child this year.

Language (Receptive, Expressive, Social, Alternative Augmentive Communication (AAC))
Articulation ( Speech intelligibility)
